HEALTHY SOIL • HEALTHY FOOD • HEALTHY PEOPLE
Visit to Bruern Farms, West Oxfordshire
Tuesday, 17th May 2.00 pm
Continuing West Oxfordshire Green Party's series of talks and activities on the theme of Food and Farming we have organised a visit to Bruern Farms.
Those of you that attended our "Healthy Food Shouldn't Cost the Earth" event will remember Henry Astor's talk. He has offered us the opportunity to visit his farm when we would have the opportunity to 'go behind the scenes’ of the farm and find out more about the history of the farm. With Summer almost upon us we thought that this was an ideal time. We can also use it to mark the Green Party's historic win in nearby Brize Norton & Shilton in the local elections.
Bruern Farms is a third generation family run farm in the North East Cotswolds. They are passionate about the environment and work hard to create an eco-system where their farming practices produce healthy food whilst increasing biodiversity. They have a small farm shop and their cafe is a popular community hub. In the shop they offer a range of home grown and local products including delicious pasture-fed English longhorn beef, free range pork, pastured eggs and wild venison.
Bruern Farms' mission is:
To create a farming system that restores soil health; produces nutritious food and increases biodiversity
To build community through events, education and outreach
Its Vision is :
To pioneer farming methods that provide solutions to the current challenges facing conventional British farming such as soil depletion, food security, climate change and habitat loss.
Come and Join us and learn about a farm that cares about the environment and strongly believes that healthy soil is essential for healthy food and hence healthy people.
